RealRyder® International LLC Sponsors Wish Upon A Hero’s “BE A HERO 4.28.12″ Nationwide Indoor Cycling Fundraising Event
(Santa Monica, CA: February 8, 2012) – RealRyder® Indoor Cycling enthusiasts across the nation will be taking to their “un-stationary” RealRyder bikes with meaningful purpose on April 28, 2012. Rather than focusing on improving their athleticism or scorching away calories, riders will pedal with the goal of becoming a hero to someone in need.
As the official sponsor to Wish Upon A Hero’s nationwide indoor cycling event, BE A HERO 4.28.12, RealRyder International LLC has invited its team of U.S. customers to join the virtual peloton for a one-day indoor cycling event. Proceeds will benefit the Wish Upon A Hero Foundation (WUAHF), the 501©3 non-profit arm of Wish Upon A Hero, WUAHF grants the wishes of Americans in need and provides assistance to children living with cancer, struggling military families, food to those less fortunate, medical care and devices to families in need and helps to prevent homelessness.
“I know I speak for everyone in the RealRyder family when I say that we’re extremely proud to partner with Wish Upon a Hero on this event,” said Colin Irving, RealRyder International’s CEO and the creator of the RealRyder ABF8 Indoor Cycle. “We are honored and excited by this opportunity, and we’re committed to supporting Wish Upon A Hero’s remarkable work and aligning our communities to make a huge impact in April!”
Deemed the “Facebook of Philanthropy,” Wish Upon a Hero is a new breed of direct, charitable giving — the world’s largest online social helping network which connects people in need with people willing to help. Since launching in 2007, more than 87,000 wishes have been granted online at: wishuponahero.com
“Wish Upon A Hero is proud to have RealRyder as our partner for this ground breaking visionary event,” said Jill Pavel, WUAH’s National Event Director. “For the first time registrants can participate from their home and see their funding go to the wishes we are granting LIVE on event day. Please join us on event day as we all celebrate our efforts together!”
Participating RealRyder® Indoor Cycling facilities who are leading the pack include: MultiSport Fitness and FitRyde (PA), B East and Cycle Evolution (NY), GoRyde (NJ), Cheetahfit (CO) and Elevate Cycling (MT).
EMG LIVE Fitness will be the online host for the Be A Hero Event. They will feature LIVE streaming cycling classes from four locations, including B East, a premiere RealRyder cycling studio in the New York Hamptons, while simultaneously streaming LIVE wishes being granted to wish seekers.
